About Sarah

6 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Your dog's comfort is my priority. While your dog is at my home, I will not accept reservations for any other dogs. We are ready to give your dog lots of love and attention.

I've grown up with dogs my entire life. I've cared for large and small dogs, lazy dogs and crazy active dogs. I've been dog sitting for about 10 years now. I'm comfortable with all types of dogs and would love to get to know you and your pups!

During the week we are away 8-9 hours at work, so it's important that your dog can go 8-9 hours between potty breaks. Your dog is welcome to stay out in the living room when we are away, or stay in a crate. Your dog is welcome to sleep on the couches, floor, in a crate, or on a dog bed you bring. Whatever your dog is used to and you are comfortable with!

My husband and I live in a small one story duplex with a large backyard area. The yard is not fenced in. If your dog is comfortable without a leash, we can run around in the back yard. If not, we will keep your dog on a leash at all times out of the house.

We have our own dog, 2 year old goldendoodle, Zoe. She is friendly with other dogs and up to date on all her shots. She loves to have friends over to play!

Message me with questions. We can be flexible to your needs and hope to provide your dog with a home away from home.

Sarah was a fabulous hostess! Pippi loved playing with Zoe and is exhausted from a fun weekend with her new friend. I loved getting photos of their adventures. Sarah is reliable, friendly and accommodating, and we will definitely choose to stay with her again.
Frequent updates with pictures of Cooper happy, playing, snoozing and just all around having a wonderful time. Will continue to have them watch Cooper while I'm out of town !
Cooper had a wonderful time and Sarah sent the pictures to prove it. Cooper and Zoe play very well together and I can tell he is well taken care of and very comfortable. :)
Sarah was so great with my dog Dexter who can be a lot to handle sometimes. She was also able to accommodate a last minute booking which was so helpful. I would definitely recommend her home for anyone!
This was my first time using DogVacay, but it won't be my last. I can tell my dogs were happy to be in a home rather than a kennel. Sarah was responsive to all my questions and handled their special diets with ease. I loved that she sent pics of my fur babies throughout the weekend and kept me updated. We will definitely be asking her to watch our two dogs again. Thanks so much for such a positive experience, Sarah, and giving our two dogs love and attention :)
Sarah and Ryan are wonderful! We needed a place to leave our 5 month old puppy for his first time away from home, and they accommodated our last minute request! Sarah updated me with pictures throughout our puppy's stay, which definitely put me at ease. Our puppy is quite a handful at this young age, but they were absolute pros, I would recommend them to anyone!
Sarah and Ryan are absolutely fantastic! We've used them twice now for our little crazy dog, Trane and he comes home so well loved. We couldn't ask for better care! Sarah keeps me posted with daily photos--something that goes a long way to ease any anxieties I feel about leaving Trane overnight. Seriously, I can't say enough good things about this wonderful couple (and their cute pup Zoey)!
Sarah is fantastic! My min pin rescue had a wonderful week-long stay with her and her dog, Zoe. This was the first time I left Winston for more than a day, so I was really nervous. He's very shy at first and takes time to adjust to both new people and animals. I was so relieved to find Sarah and that I knew she would give him the time he needed to adjust - by the end of the first day he had made himself at home! She sent daily photos and responded very quickly to texts for updates and questions during his stay. Would absolutely use her again.
Sarah and her husband again took wonderful care of Cooper while I was away. They sent multiple picture updates which I loved, and he got along really well with their pup. They were very nice and followed my high maintenance diet and medication instructions (as he had recently been sick) with a smile on their face. I picked up a very happy, tired pup :) Would definitely leave Cooper with Sarah again!!
Cooper had a wonderful time staying with Sarah. Him and her dog, Zoe became fast friends. She sent frequent updates and was very flexible with last minute changes to pick up/drop off times. I could tell Cooper felt comfortable at her home and got a good amount of attention and exercise while I was gone. Will definitely have them take care of him again in the future! :)
They were great with our two dogs. One has special needs and we were grateful to have someone who was comfortable and experienced.
Sarah was great. She was easy to contact, and took good care of my dog while we had out of town guests.
Tetta seemed to have a very good time with Sarah. She was very relaxed and esy-going when we picked her up again. Also, Sarah was very flexible with drop-off and pickup arrangements, helping us much with our personal schedule. Thanks again, Sarah!
Sarah was great. No issues with drop off or the late pickup. Definitely recommend Sarah to anyone that is looking for a sitter.
Sarah was great! I had a complicated drop-off and pickup situation with Callie and Sarah was incredibly flexible, making it much easier on me. Thanks so much!
Sarah was great--so nice and easy-going! This was my first time using DogVacay and I would definitely do so again. I returned from my trip to a happy dog for certain and it was awesome to know she was hanging out with people and playing outside rather than caged up in a kennel for days.
Sarah was a great host. My dog loved her and had a great time. She worked around my schedule and I'd definitely board with her again!
This was the first time I used DogVacay and it was great! The whole process, from making the reservation to picking up our dog, was super easy and Sarah and Ryan were extremely accommodating. Our dog seemed very happy when we picked her up!
My dogs had a great time with Sarah; they came home happy and relaxed. Additionally, Sarah was accommodating and thoughtful around my travel plans.
Our dog was happy and relaxed when I picked her up at Sarah's house. Sarah provided a much better experience for our dog than the boarding kennels we had been using. I will definitely use her again!
Sarah was such a great host to my 2 pups! They had quite an extended stay - 4 weeks - and I know they had a wonderful time. When we arrived to drop them off, my dogs were so excited they barely noticed I was leaving. She was great about checking in, and even sent a photo. We would definitely recommend her!
